Fast-change PET air conveying

Thanks to a high-efficiency louver design that directs air to the shoulder area and sides of the container the WSF system uses 1-HP motors that can be spaced 24’ apart versus the industry standard 3- to 5-HP motors spaced at 15’–20’ lengths. That saves up to 80% in energy use versus other air conveyors according to Goldco Industries (Loveland CO).
